The wallet is an easy to use light client that provides the ability to store, send and receive BCH and BTC.

Press “Start Sideshift AI” to proceed with swapping BTC for BCH or vice versa. After the start button is selected, you to choose a wallet with funds to send from in order to conduct the trade. After picking a wallet with funds and then choosing a wallet to send to (the receiving address), the user then selects how much they want to trade. The Sideshift application allows you to choose “All available funds” as well.
After choosing the amount of funds to swap, the user is shown how much Sideshift will charge for the trade and the BCH network fee deduction too. You’ll then be asked to press the “OK” tab, which gives consent to the swap and network processing fees and slide the send bar to finalize the shift. Using the shifting feature takes just a couple of minutes and the Sideshift fee is very competitive compared to the majority of shifting platforms.
